Frequently asked questions

How much does it cost?

Costs are negotiable but we will be able to work within your budget to give you the event you want for a price you can afford.

When can you do them?

Most of our events take place at weekends, but with enough notice weekday events are possible.

What kind of event can you put on?

The Sealed Knot has 40 years of experience of putting on events across the country. We can provide everything from small corporate events to modest historical encampments to large-scale battles.

The bigger the event, the more time for planning is required. But we will work with sponsors to ensure that the event is delivered on time and within budget.

We canít afford to pay you, but could you do an event anyway?

Unfortunately, there are costs involved in staging larger events - our members are volunteers and we have to provide them with facilities so that they can take part.

However, all our members are committed to providing the most professional service possible, and we are dedicated to working with organisers and sponsors to put a great show on for the public.
